Well, from what I heard (and I can't remember where I heard it) - the 2.x
series that Rik van Riel is now maintaining is the one being used by the
guys on lkml and is more in sync with the current kernel developments, but
how true this is I'm not in a position to say.

<rant>Open source is all well and good until people abuse it by releasing
"derived" projects.  Why either Rik or the maintainer of the sourceforge
based project couldn't collaborate, thereby having just the single procps
package I don't know.</rant>

Cheers,

Matt.
